Monday--Chaos Tamed and Goals

Monday, March 29, 2010

My sewing room is better than ever.  

This is when you stand behind the long arm--bright South Dakota sunshine today, the weather is glorious.  The shelves are started to be filled with "treasures".  There is a 120" picture window in front of me when I quilt.

This is the north wall, we have rearranged things, and more treasures on the shelves.

A pile of completed tops, tops to be quilted, and Henrietta's tops, stacked on the cedar chest.

More tops to be quilted.  This is the stack on the piano bench.  There are still more tops hanging in the closet. 

Henrietta has been pulling backings and matching them to tops.  I haven't counted, maybe I better not!

Ken carried one of the sewing machines in a cabinet downstairs. (Jay--it's that one for you!)  I still have three in cabinets, plus some portables--so we're not lacking for a sewing machine!

I only have one goal this week, to finish quilting the top on the machine.  And I'm half way done, maybe later today I will get back to it.

It looks like you won't be running out of tops to quilt any time soon. I like your sewing room, especially the lovely big window and all the light. You should see the room I quilt in in the basement. My Premier is on a 10-ft. table and I have to move it side to side & end to end to work on it. Makes me cranky sometimes, but better than no quilting machine at all.

Wonderful room! You better chain yourself to that long arm to get all those tops done!

Very nice sewing room but where's the before pics.I like that you can see outside while sewing or working on your longarm. And boy do you ever have a lot of tops to quilt. Maybe I should send you a few of mine too! LOL

Holy cow, who gave Henrietta the vitamins?

Amazing how many tops you have! I don't feel quite so badly now, with my half-dozen or so, but then, I haven't pulled them out to finish them, either!

What a lovely sewing room. I'd like to just sit down and have a cup of coffee there! I promise not to spill.
